Former president Jimmy Carter announced that his cancer was “gone” at a Sunday School class he teaches in Plains, Georgia, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Back in August, the 91-year-old Carter revealed that doctors had found four melanoma lesions on his brain, but following drug treatments and radiation therapy, his doctors told him last week that his latest scan showed that he was now cancer-free. According to a friend of Carter, Jill Stuckey, who was at Maranatha Baptist Church when Carter made the announcement, “The church, everybody here, just erupted in applause.”
